Count us in: because I care about my children’s future.


Your Children Count

Everyone Means Everyone
• Children are the most under-counted group in the census.
• It is important that you count everyone living with you on your census form, no matter their age or citizenship status. If they live in your household, they count.
• By counting your children in the census, you are doing your part to create a better future for your family and your community.

The census helps decide how much money Los Angeles will get for important things like:
Meal Programs
Child Care
Affordable Housing

Each person counted in the census means more money will go to your community for the next 10 years. Participating in the census means you are claiming your community’s fair share of federal money.

Your Information is Safe and Confidential
The census is safe and your information is private.
Federal law protects you and your children’s privacy.
It is illegal for anyone to share your information and there are laws that prevent anyone from providing your information to anyone.
The Census Bureau can only use your response to create information about the general population, like how many people live in your city, and statistics about age, gender, and race. The Census Bureau cannot share information about you or your children as individuals.
There will be no citizenship question.
